Hi, Thanks for these kinds of interesting writing as I were able to discover here. I agree with most of what is written right here and I'll be coming back to this website again.


I'm still confused as to why one needs a license to play music that the person owns. All the consumer is doing is storing the music. I feel as if this is a typical example of industry greed. (ps--i work in the industry, my job depends upon licensing.)


An excellent question! Yet another reason why things like Creative Commons are gaining in popularity - they do away with confusing and pointless copyright/licensing bs.

The reason is because rather than creating new music that people want to buy, music companies are would like to make consumers pay and pay again, and pay often for the same music they bought 10 years ago. This has been their only business model for some time now. Duplicate, media shift, repackaging rather than delivering new and great music.

Don't get me wrong I don't want to be unfair to the companies, but this is really a no-brainer and instead of fighting it as is their usual mentality - why not embrace the fact that people want to play their legally purchased music whenever and however we want - and should be able to do that legally.
